The company it is also implementing changes to meet customer demand and protect its employees amid the rapid spread of COVID-19. These changes will also help to ensure stores can remain open to provide tires and auto care to guests who need them, including law enforcement, first responders and others in essential roles, such as doctors, nurses and grocers.
“Because of the services we provide, many of our guests, including the law enforcement, first responders and medical workers responsible for protecting public health and safety, rely on us for tire and auto service to keep their vehicles on the road,” said Fred Thomas, vice president, Goodyear Retail. “With the continued spread of COVID-19 and the unprecedented challenges facing the community, we are reducing our operating hours to allow us to continue to serve our guests while prioritizing the health and wellbeing of our associates.”
Changes include temporarily reducing store hours to 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and closing on Sundays. This will enable stores to operate in multiple shifts and limit close personal contact among the store teams and with others where possible while still meeting current customer demand.
